The who, what and why behind Cynful Creations (artwork and jewellery created by Cynthia).

It all started last Monday night at the Journal Junkies meeting when Laura asked me if I would meet her at Bizzy B this afternoon to help her put together a travel journal for a trip she and her husband took to Newfoundland last year. I invited Colleen to join us and she invited Kelly along and then store owner Barb brought in a bag of goodies to work on and next thing you know, we had a play date!
L to R: Barb, Kelly, Laura and Colleen
We chatted, lunched on subway sandwiches and chocolate, and swapped ideas on products and techniques while sitting around the large table in the back, with occasional shopping forays about the store (Daniza was very helpful when it came to recommendations, the perfect craft supply enabler). I worked on my Seattle journal (almost done), Colleen finished a journal from her recent trip to Mexico, Kelly worked on stamping and painting chipboard tiles with Distress Inks which she then covered with Diamond Glaze (something I definitely want to try), Barb finished a journal page and Laura readied her products for next week's 2nd hand sale and never did get started on her trip journal (after deciding that the best journal to use was one she already had at home) but now has lots of ideas for how she wants to proceed with the project.
It was a great way to spend a sunny but cool winter Sunday afternoon in the middle of a long weekend, thanks for the company, ladies! Same time, next month?
My first artistic addiction was beading and making jewellery, which I started doing in the summer of 2007. Since then, my artistic obsession has grown to include art journaling. Here in this blog, I write about my own and other people's creations and anything else that tweaks my fancy.
